Acephalix - TheothanatologyAcephalix are a death metal band from the US and this is their fourth album.

Theothanatology, (which features a member of Draghkar/Vastum), is an album of blunt brutality, repeatedly slamming broken bits of gravestone into your head across 32 minutes of death metal barbarity. Continue reading “Acephalix – Theothanatology (Review)”

Entrails – An Eternal Time of Decay (Review)

Entrails - An Eternal Time of DecayThis is the seventh album from Entrails, a Swedish death metal band.

A new Entrails album is always worth a listen. I enjoyed 2015’s Obliteration, 2017’s World Inferno, and 2019’s Rise of the Reaper, and An Eternal Time of Decay – with its 46 minutes of material – is no different. Continue reading “Entrails – An Eternal Time of Decay (Review)”

Demonical – Mass Destroyer (Review)

Demonical - Mass DestroyerDemonical are from Sweden and this is their seventh album. They play death metal.

I always enjoy Demonical’s work, (check out 2016’s Black Flesh Redemption and 2018’s Chaos Manifesto), so new material by the band is definitely well-received. I never got the chance to review 2020’s World Domination, so now that we have Mass Destroyer I wanted to make certain that this oversight didn’t happen twice. Continue reading “Demonical – Mass Destroyer (Review)”

Sentient Horror – Rites of Gore (Review)

Sentient Horror - Rites of GoreThis is the third album from US death metallers Sentient Horror.

My long-standing love affair with old-school Swedish death metal has begun to wane in the last couple of years. Where I was once easily pleased, I am now much less so, and I seek the style out far less than I used to. However, Sentient Ruin’s Rites of Gore has rubbed me up the right way, so it Continue reading “Sentient Horror – Rites of Gore (Review)”

Carnation – Where Death Lies (Review)

Carnation - Where Death LiesThis is the second album from Belgian death metallers Carnation.

Having really enjoyed 2018’s Chapel of Abhorrence, it’s with high expectations that I turned to Where Death Lies. It turns out they the band have exceeded these expectations with ease. Continue reading “Carnation – Where Death Lies (Review)”

Rogga Johansson – Entrance to the Otherwhere (Review)

Rogga Johansson - Entrance to the OtherwhereRogga Johansson is a Swedish death metal legend and this is his second solo album.

Rogga Johansson is a man of many bands – listing groups like Paganizer, Down Among the Dead Men, and Echelon only scratches the surface. Not content with his many, many projects, he also has this eponymously named new album. As you would expect, it’s death metal, pure and undiluted.
